Hi apparantly google will shortly be releasing google Arhive in a few months so we can forget about the Web archive, esp since they have stopped updating - maybe google has collaborated with the way back machine?
No firm release dates yet.

Thank you for your question. No, we have not received any offers of collaboration from anyone for our Wayback Machine. We have been moving servers to a new data center, which is why we have not updated in a while. We will start that process in the next month or so. I will watch for Google's Archive with interest. Thank you for the tip.

Google Domains Foreshadow an Archive Search?

Will Google be launching their own version of the Archive.org Wayback Machine? Some recent domain name purchases have ZDNet’s Garett Rogers following his gut and predicting that such a service (perhaps even a paid for professional service?) may be right around the corner.

I can appreciate the Internet Archive's response that they are working on improvements to thier services. And I know it is frustrating when you can't find something you want.

However, I don't think it is appropriate to solicit other archive services just because you are unhappy about the temperary pause in updates. Google is Google, and I respect their offerings. But I also have respect for the original Wayback Machine and its developers. I think they have done a good job for so long.

So basically, have some respect - especially on their own bulletin forum. You did join as a user after all...
